About this title


An Introduction to Greek and Latin Palaeography traces the develop­ment of handwriting in the Greek and Latin alphabets from the earli­est papyri up to the book hands of the middle ages and the court hands of the seventeenth century. It is, without doubt, the best introductory text on the subject ever to appear in English. This edition has been completely reset, and the illustrations have been digitally enhanced. A few illustrations have been replaced. Sir Edward Maunde Thompson (1840-1929) entered University College, Oxford, in 1859 but had to leave before completing his degree. He entered the library of the British Museum (now British Library) in 1861 and became Keeper of Manuscripts in 1878. He was appointed Principal Librarian in 1888.

Book Description:

This study of the history and development of Greek and Latin handwriting from earliest times to the end of the fifteenth century is copiously illustrated with photographic plates. Sir Edward Maunde Thompson (1840-1929) revised and expanded a shorter work of 1893 to produce this highly respected and illustrated edition in 1912.
